Colorado Will Rewrite Medical Marijuana Business Rules

The state agency charged with policing medical-marijuana dispensaries is preparing a broad rewrite of its rules for the businesses, just as the state begins to contemplate regulation for recreational marijuana stores.

In an announcement on its website, the Department of Revenue’s Medical Marijuana Enforcement Division, or MMED, promises to release a draft of the rewritten rules by Dec. 28.

“Based on industry feedback, and its own experience, the MMED has determined that the majority of the existing medical marijuana rules … are in need of amendment,” the announcement states.

MMED spokeswoman Julie Postlethwait said the division will hold three public forums to discuss new rules, with the first coming Jan. 11.

“We’re trying to be very inclusive,” Postlethwait said. “We’re going to be reworking the rules and amending them, which is very common, especially when you have such a new program.”
